Wraggle Taggle Gypsies

Three gypsies stood at the castle gate

They sang so high, they sang so low

The lady sat in her chamber late

Her heart it melted away like snow

They sang so sweet, they sang so shrill

That fast her tears began to flow

She laid down her silken gown

Her golden rings and all her show

Then she took off her high-heeled shoes

All made of Spanish leather-o

She went in the street in her bare, bare feet

All out in the wind and the weather-o

“O saddle to me my milk-white steed

And go and fetch my pony-o

That I may ride and seek my bride

Who is gone with the wraggle taggle gypsies-o”

He rode high and he rode low

Rode through woods and copses, too

Until he came to an open field

And there he spied his lady-o

“What makes you leave your house and land?

Your golden treasure for to go?

What makes you leave your new-wedded lord

To follow the wraggle taggle gypsies-o?”

“What care I for my house and land?

What care I for my treasure-o?

What care I for my new-wedded lord?

I’m off with the wraggle taggle gypsies-o!”

“Last night you slept on a goose-feather bed

With the sheets turned down so bravely-o

And tonight you’ll sleep in a cold open field

Along with the wraggle taggle gypsies-o!”

“What care I for a goose-feather bed?

The sheets turned down so bravely-o!

Tonight I‘ll sleep in a cold open field

Along with the wraggle taggle gypsies-o!”
